I am looking for a list of hotels in downtown Houston that may be off the beaten path? I am traveling for a conference and the mainstream hotels are sold out... please help!
New to Houston. I'm thinking of driving to Reliant stadium and park somewhere there, near the metro rail. Take the the rail from there all the way to the other end, maybe with some stops in between for lunch and maybe just walk around at 2-3 stops in and around downtown. I guess I'm just trying to find out if this makes sense and if it's possible. Also if you have any suggestions to add to that, I would appreciate it.

Hello VT er,
We are visiting people from Katy and on the day we fly back, our host is unavailable able to drive us to the airport.
Does anyone have good suggestion getting to the International George Bush Airportt? We will be coming from Katy, Texas ( north Katy, near Cooperfield).
We realized on our first day here in Texas, how huge and vast is Texas, one needs a vehicle otherwise you can't get anywhere. Texas has so much to offer to tourists. Its a very attractive place to visit, but again, you need your vehicle..
Many thanks for any suggestions getting to International George Bush Airport.
I will be attending a conference early next year at The Westin Oaks Houston at the Galleria, located at 5060 West Alabama in Houston. All the hotel rooms reserved for the conference are already booked and I am wondering if there is another hotel within walking distance?
Thanks so much.

Hello our dear VT'ers,
We are spending most of our Christmas at a small town in Texas which is called "KATY", and we suppose a bit larger than Katy would be Houston.
Upon our arrival at George Bush International airport, we wish to shop
few large fresh salmon. When we shop for these things, we prefer to
buy them from Chinatown.
Would there be a Chinatown in Houston nearest the George Bush International Airport? If so, could you please give us the main street as we will be using
a GPS for our guidance.
I am a sou chef and this is the way, we love entertaining friends, cooking few mediterrean dishes..
Many thanks dear VTers'

Can anyone suggest an economical car rental for two weeks. There is just two of us, so, perhaps a small car is efficient for this trip.
Many thanks to all and wishing you all a VERY HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!
